Marcos Alonso takes to social media to share a picture of himself battling for possession with Ola Aina in Chelsea training

Marcos Alonso has taken to social media to share a picture of himself battling for possession with Ola Aina in Chelsea training at Cobham ahead of Monday’s crunch clash with Middlesbrough.

The Blues are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League clash against Boro at Stamford Bridge on Monday night as they look to take a step closer towards the title.

Chelsea are now just two wins away from winning the Premier League title this season after West Ham United’s victory over Tottenham at the London Stadium on Friday night.

Alonso will be expecting to start in defence for the Blues when they take on Middlesbrough on Monday night.

And he looked to be in good shape as he tussled with possession with 20-year-old Aina in training before the game.

Alonso shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Making every day count. Entrenando fuerte. 💪🏼👊🏼⚽️🏹 @chelseafc @nikefootball.”
